Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep

Capturing Cassidy’s quirky rhythms, breathing patterns and ‘back beats’ (delaying some notes for poignant effect) involved literally hours listening to the original, transcribing the changes onto the sheet music, and then putting it all together to a backing track.
The result was a unique performance by Toni, which reduced the assembled mourners to tears for all the right reasons. It’s become one of our favourites and not something we ever thought we’d sing or even enjoy singing.
